Introduction to Visual Culture & Cultural Studies with Writing Lab
This introductory course explores visual representations across cultures and various media from prehistory to the present. Emphasis is placed on postmodern forms of visual communication, which include advertisements, film, YouTube, the Internet, fashion, music videos, posters, and other visual forms of communication. Situating the visual contextually requires investigation into other forms of cultural constructs, and may include study of ideology, commerce, power, religion, diaspora, gender and sexuality, politics, space of production, and memory.
